Forest Hills Tuv Ha'Aretz CSA Summer/Fall 2018
Welcome to online registration for Summer/Fall shares for 2018!

Shares will be Tuesday evenings for 25 weeks, from May 29th to November 13th, to the Crystal Room of the Forest Hills Jewish Center. Note: due to Jewish Holiday conflicts, shares will be on THURSDAYS for Sept 13, 20, 27 and October 4th.

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a partnership where urban consumers receive fresh, nutritious vegetables while helping to sustain the livelihoods of regional farmers. In a CSA arrangement the farmers pre-sells “shares” of their farm’s upcoming harvest to individuals, families, and institutions.

In order to complete your registration, you must:

1. Fill out the application below. **** - you will need to select your volunteer slot BEFORE completing your application. You can do that now, by clicking on this link; it will open in another window (tab).
2. We will invoice you, and give you information about where to send your check or -- pay with PAYPAL.
3. Your payment must be received within 1 week of the invoice date. PLEASE do not drop off checks to FHJC!
4. IF YOU ARE SPLITTING YOUR SHARE: ONE PARTNER MUST PAY THE FULL AMOUNT! We can no longer accept 2 payments per share.

If you are unable to volunteer, we are offering a limited number of non/volunteering slots. You may choose this option on the volunteer sign up sheet. You will be billed an additional $75.


VEGETABLE SHARES are certified organic, locally grown seasonal vegetables from Golden Earthworm Organic Farm.
For vegetable shares, you may purchase a FULL share or a HALF share. A FULL share can be for one household or can be shared between two households.
If you choose to split your full share only ONE person will sign up for the FULL Share and indicate who you will be sharing with. You will pick up the full share on a weekly basis, but you will need to coordinate with the other household who will pick up the box and how the vegetables will be divided.
HALF SHARE is another option for smaller households. You will be assigned to pick up the full amount of vegetables EVERY OTHER WEEK. "A week" and "B week" are clearly marked on the volunteer sign up sheet, you'll be assigned A or B based on what you sign for, so plan carefully.(see sign up sheet for details)

FRUIT SHARES include fresh, seasonal fruit from Briermere Farms. Since Long Island weather conditions do not allow for organic tree fruit, Briermere Farms grows tree fruit responsibly using as little spray as possible. No berries this year - it will be a shorter season of apples​, peaches and pears. The fruit share will be 14 weeks in length​.​

OPTIONAL ADD-ON SHARES we will be offering this year include BEAN, GRAIN, and Mushroom Shares from Purcell Mountain Organics. Detailed information on these different options is below.

Our CSA (like most CSAs) require our members to volunteer each season. We mainly need volunteers to staff our pick-ups on Tuesday​s​​- either evenings , or mid day for truck unloading. If you can't commit to volunteering on a Tuesday, you can sign up for another comparable task. If you are able to sign up for a volunteer shift on a Tuesday , please do not sign up for an alternative task. We use an online sign up website. Members who do not show up to their chosen volunteer slot, and do not make it up with another slot/job may be excluded from joining the CSA for the following season. ​​

Vegetables *
Vegetable shares will be delivered on Tuesday evenings for 25 weeks, from May 29th to November 12th, to the Crystal Room of the Forest Hills Jewish Center. A FULL SHARE is the full amount picked up once a week. A FULL SHARE is recommended for larger households, or for smaller households who eat a lot of vegetables. A HALF SHARE is recommended for smaller households. To do a half share you may either sign for HALF SHARE and receive a full box on alternate weeks OR: you may find another family to split a FULL SHARE on a weekly basis. One family will sign up and you and your partner coordinate who will pick up the box and how the vegetables will be divided. You can both come to the pickup and divide the box there, or you can arrange to pick up on alternate weeks.
